Cops on the hunt for ice-cold creeps

The hoods were cold as ice.

A 29-year-old man was robbed Tuesday with an ice pick by three Hispanic men in their late teens or early 20s, police said.

The three suspects approached the victim at 2:45 a.m. at Excelsior Avenue and Edinburgh Street and physically assaulted him, police said.

During the assault, one of the thugs held an ice pick against the victim’s torso while the others robbed him, cops said.

The victim suffered from scratches and a laceration to the torso, police said. He refused medical treatment. The suspects made off with his phone and cash.

No arrests have been made, cops said.
